Company manager Go to skipper medias

To share a great story

Bruno Simonet forms part of Team BFR Marée Haute with François Jambou, Marie-Amélie Lénaerts, Fabio Muzzolini and Julien Berthélémé. A company manager and project management professional, Bruno has a long career spanning the Yole, Laser and IRC. In 1988, he discovered the Mini circuit aboard a prototype in races like the Transgascogne and the Trophée Marie-Agnès Péron.

In 2011, Bruno took the start of his first Mini-Transat, which ended in a retirement in the second leg. At 57, this father of three has chosen to have another go. “In 2011, I had my sights on performance, but this time I want to carve out a fine wake and share the story with the TEAM BFR Marée Haute.” He’s preparing to tell his story on a Rolland design, No.757, which he’s been skippering since 2015.
